Frequently Asked questions:

In over 7 years, I have never missed a wedding, but if an emergency were to come up, my assistant photographers are trained to capture your wedding day without missing a beat!

What would happen in an emergency where you can't be there?

Yes! My flat rate travel fee is $1200 for any domestic wedding outside of WA. Get in touch for more information on booking and availability.

Do you travel for weddings outside of Washington?

Yes! While I encourage my couples to print through my partnered labs for the best results, you will receive a print release that will allow you to print through any third-party (Costco, etc.)

Will we receive the printing rights to our images?

Definitely! About 6-8 weeks before your wedding day, we will go over your final timeline and add more coverage on if necessary. 8 hours is pretty typical for most traditional weddings so I recommend starting there.

Are we able to add-on more coverage later on?

You bet! Just send me an email and I'll be happy to share a few sample galleries with you. Be sure to let me know if there is a specific venue or season you would like to see photographed. 

Can we see a sample of a full wedding gallery?

If you are planning a Lake Chelan wedding, I mostly likely have shot there before (but not always). Regardless, I always try to schedule a time to walk-through the venue with my couples prior to the wedding day.

Have you photographed a wedding at my venue before?

I typically deliver between 50-100 images per hour of coverage, depending on the dynamics of the day. My goal is always to capture your wedding day seamlessly from start to finish.

How many images will we receive in our gallery?

Yes! Payment plans are available in up to 4 installments. The first payment is required at booking to reserve your wedding date.

Do you offer payment plans?

If your event is postponed, you will have the option to apply your deposit to a new date free of charge. If you need to downside to a micro wedding, package adjustments are also available.

What is your COVID-19 rescheduling policy?

- Seth, client

"She captured my surprise proposal and the pictures are amazing! Svetlana goes above and beyond! She spoke to multiple wineries for me and helped me plan my secret. Afterwards we shot an engagement session and she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera."

- Randall, client

"Svetlana has the magical ability to make you feel like you’ve known her for years, like you’re old friends. This puts you at such ease when you meet for the first time to have your portraits taken, which for many people doesn’t come naturally and can be out of their comfort zone." 

- Loreen, True Expressions weddings & Events

"I am a Chelan wedding planner and LOVE working with Svetlana! She is honestly the sweetest person, warm, creative, passionate, talented, and such an organized photographer. Svetlana truly cares for all her clients and vendors. I love her work and she has such an incredible gift!"

- Bonnie, Bride

"Svetlana is the sweetest photographer ever! She took our engagement and wedding photos. Her style is modern, romantic, and editorial. Svetlana kept in touch throughout the whole process and was very professional to work with. She made us feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera and we wouldn’t hesitate to work with Svetlana again!"

- Megan, Bride

"We had unexpected rain and very cold temperatures on our wedding day and Svetlana helped us make the very best of it with absolutely stunning photos. Her eye for composition and how she captures the emotion of the day is exactly what we were looking for in a photographer."
